So, I bought my JK Tuesday and Saturday it was out on the trails :)

There was much debate over me taking it out or not. Hubby had me drive his XJ Crawling Rig, to show him I could drive.

The trails are rated 1-5. I took the XJ on a 2+/3 trail. Did just fine.

Before I took the JK out, I was told I could only damage plastic (ie:don't damage rocker pannels). Hubby builds sliders & bumpers, just a matter of owning the Jeep one full day before we left.

I did well, only kissed one tree on the 1+ rated trail. Right now the JK is bone stock, did not get stuck any where, made it up the hills without issue.



Damage to front bumper (that was going to be replaced any way)

Sweet and congrats on your new rig..... the first dent is the hardest dent, but it looks like you already have the right attitude.... damage = new parts! Have fun!

Nice! I did that too. I had dealer tags on it and wheeled it the first weekend I had it. Glad that you had fun!
